Problem Details

Calculate the initial rate for the formation of C at 25°C, if [A]=0.50M and [B]=0.075M. Express your answer to two significant figures and include the appropriate units. Consider the reaction

A+2B → C

whose rate at 25°C was measured using three different sets of initial concentrations as listed in the following table:

Trial                    [A]                    [B]                    Rate
                          (M)                   (M)                    (M/s)
1                       0.20                 0.030                1.4 x 10 3  

2                       0.20                 0.060                2.9 x 10      - 3

3                       0.40                 0.030                5.8 x 10       - 3
